The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the world, and this has been reflected in the language we use. As people grapple with the challenges of the pandemic, new words and phrases have emerged to describe the unique experiences of this time. In this study, apart from the most frequent neologisms, will also be discussed two of the most common neologisms which have emerged during and in the wake of COVID-19: “Social distancing” and “Zoom fatigue”.

Keywords: Neologisms, morphology, wordformation, affixation, Covid-19, affixation, etc.
